The purpose of the SBA (Small Business Administration) is to directly identify and award small businesses located in the United States. The government sets aside a certain percentage of federal contracting dollars to those who are small business certified and/or have a specific set-aside certification. All government contracts under $250k are directly awarded to small businesses so it is beneficial to qualify.
